Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Master of Engineering Major in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

The University of Queensland

Course details

CRICOS course code: 080724A

Level of study: Undergraduate

Summary

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Master of Engineering combines our undergraduate engineering program with master's level coursework, research and a semester-long placement with an industry or research partner. Apply for the program directly, or transfer into the program after completing 16 units of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours). Current UQ students need to meet minimum GPA requirements. Complete a semester-long placement and project with an industrial or research organisation. The placement is designed to integrate your technical, commercial, professional and personal development. Undertake a supervised master's thesis on a relevant topic. You'll be involved with all aspects of research, including defining a research question, establishing a methodology, reporting on your findings, and more.

Career Outcomes

Whether you undertake the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) / Master of Engineering program as a bridge to a high-level career in industry, or as the beginning of career in research, a double degree qualification gives graduates an advantage when applying for professional roles. Because engineering offers such a diversity of career options, our graduates can be found working everywhere from office-based software engineering jobs in city centres, to oil rigs in remote locations, or infrastructure projects on the world. They work in a wide range of specialties including aerospace, chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical, mining and software. The specific roles or industries graduates work in largely depends on their majors.

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

The Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering major combineÕs courses in mechanical engineering with additional specialist study and project work in the aerospace and aviation industry. Aerospace engineering is concerned with the design, manufacture and operation of aircraft, launch vehicles, satellites, spacecraft and ground support facilities. It is a particularly sophisticated and innovative discipline because it involves designing aircraft and spacecraft that are light-weight, but extremely strong. All students study aerospace propulsion, design and manufacturing and then specialise in either the aeronautical or space engineering streams to obtain their dual major. You can study topics including flight mechanics, aerospace composites, space engineering, hypersonic aerodynamics and computational fluid dynamics.

Career outcomes for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

As a Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering graduate, you'll have all the employment opportunities of a mechanical engineer, as well as further possibilities as an aerospace engineer. Our graduates work in design and development, testing and manufacturing, consulting firms, government agencies and educational institutions. Employment opportunities in Australia and overseas range from very large aerospace, automotive, building, construction and manufacturing companies to small companies where you might be the only engineer.

Some graduates start their own companies soon after they've gained the necessary experience to become a Chartered Professional Engineer (CPEng).
